Mário Jorge dos Santos Gustavo Mil-Homens


Mário Mil-Homens is currently a researcher of the Portuguese Institute of Sea and Atmosphere – Division of Environmental Oceanography since 2014. He finished is PhD in Geology in Goteborg University (2006). He concluded is MSc in Geochemistry in University of Aveiro (1997).
His research activity is focused on biogeochemistry, in particularly on the: 1) temporal reconstruction of trace metal inputs in marine and estuarine environments, 2) definition of elemental backgrounds, 3) development of methodologies (e.g., use of Pb and Hg isotopes as tracers sources of contamination and characterization of environmental processes that affect their distributions) for evaluating the impact of contamination in sediments.
